This month’s edition of Lead + Follow — a Q&A section dedicated to further understanding the personal and professional mindsets of area business leaders — features Keith W. Page, founder and CEO of Legacy Gutter Cleaning in Puyallup.
Page spent more than 23 years in the banking industry, as a branch manager, business banker, and mortgage loan officer, leading business franchises of all types in several diverse markets before leaving the field to pursue his lifelong dream of becoming a business owner.
In September 2019, Legacy Gutter Cleaning officially opened for business. Today, the family-owned gutter- and roof-cleaning business serves Pierce County. Page also is involved in his community, supporting several nonprofits and serving as chair for the Gig Harbor Chamber of Commerce. He also speaks on financial literacy and leadership development for students in high school and college.
In his spare time, Page enjoys golfing, vacationing, and exploring other cultures around the world. He also loves to spend time with his wife, Stacy, and his two daughters, Siara and Kiara.
